Greetings Branch Member,
As you are aware, ASALH is providing an incentive to those who join or renew by December 31, 2022. Advance notices like this one have been sent to branch members to ensure all can take advantage of the benefit of paying the 2022 dues rate for 2023.
All branches are asked to contact former members, new members, and those who are not current members of your branch to share this offer with them. Use this incentive in the correspondence that you are using during the renewal period that began on October 1.
The new dues rates has been posted to the website for your reference. Dues paid through the website will be processed at the 2022 rate through December 31, 2022. If your branch collects national dues, please submit your payment to them as soon as possible. Branches have been requested to submit the payment for all members taking advantage of this incentive by December 19. Consider gifting a membership to a family member or friend. Share information about ASALH membership as you network with during the holiday season.
Here is the JOIN page on the ASALH website. Membership benefits, mail in membership enrollment forms and the link to purchase membership online can be found here.
The vision that Dr. Woodson had for our association in 1915 is as important now as it was then. Too many people do not know our rich history and its importance in shaping our communities and positively impacting our youth. Although through his efforts there is more information available, our role in being leaders in teaching and training remains important. Your membership in the ASALH family ensures that the work to promote, research, preserve, interpret and disseminate information about Black life, history and culture to the global community will continue.
